Active Attitude’s “Coach in Training” programme provides teenagers with the opportunity to learn how to lead and coach. It has been designed to provide opportunities for self-development to enhance a young person’s ability to role model and deliver physical activity to children. Coaches in Training shadow our coaches and assist them with running classes and sports events for our Active Attitude participants. Programme participants receive regular mentoring from the coaches they shadow and our Active Attitude director.
Participants get to learn about the “behind the scenes” of how a club works and learn basic admin skills to assist with successfully looking after and monitoring the progress of children participating in child development programmes. Coaches in Training also get to participate in Active Attitude’s annual “Young Leaders Day” designed to enhance their communication and interpersonal skills. There are various learning modules throughout the year that Active Attitude puts on to assist our young coaches with developing coaching and customer service skills. Our “Coaches in Training” also get access to Active Attitude’s online learning portal which assists with their learning of how to teach skills, while also monitoring their progress through the different assessments and experiences they have with us here at Active Attitude.
